The city side displayed impressive powers of recovery by winning 3-0 at Newcastle Town last weekend (September 23), just seven days after a humbling, club record 9-1 defeat at the hands of Stocksbridge Park Steels.

Stamford host Newcastle tomorrow, when Spalding United travel to lowly Market Drayton.

Spalding are fifth ahead of the Saturday games with Stamford 11th and Sports 14th.
